2019 Acura MDX Advance

No matter where your next Niles or Riverside adventure takes you, the 2019 Acura MDX can help you reach your destination without trouble. The Acura MDX towing capacity maxes out at 5,000 pounds, and that means it’s just as well-adapted for heavy lifting as it is for comfort and convenience! Read on to learn more about the new Acura MDX towing capability, and then experience its power for yourself at McGrath Acura of Downtown Chicago.

How Much Can an Acura MDX Tow?

The amount that you’ll be able to tow in your Acura MDX depends first of all upon whether you select a build with front-wheel drive or Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive. Although the former is standard in every trim other than the A-Spec® package, SH-AWD is optional even if you opt for the baseline model. The MDX FWD can tow up to 3,500 pounds, while the MDX SH-AWD can tow up to 5,000. No matter which you choose, you’ll benefit from the following MDX components and capabilities:

  • 3.5L V6 engine with direct injection
  • 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque
  • 9-speed automatic transmission with Sequential SportShift Paddle Shifters
  • Integrated Dynamics System with Comfort, Normal, and Sport modes

Drivers who choose the Advance or Technology packages will also have the option to equip their vehicle with Sport Hybrid technology. When paired with SH-AWD, Sport Hybrid models offer the same 5,000-pound towing capacity.

MDX Technology for Safer Towing

Most drivers know that there’s more to towing than raw power alone. Acura has designed this year’s MDX with technology features that aid performance and allow for safer towing at the same time. When you’re working with a heavy load, Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA) with Traction Control and Motion Adaptive Steering goes to work.

By tracking your vehicle’s speed, throttle position, steering angle, yaw rate, and g-force, these systems are able to detect oversteering. When they do, they’ll apply the brakes and reduce engine torque automatically, managing traction wheel-by-wheel, in order to bring your vehicle back under control.
